Gmane
From: Thorsten Glaser <tg <at> mirbsd.de>
Subject: Bug#424232: net-tools: ifconfig -i option missing
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.debian.devel.bugs.general
Date: Tuesday 15th May 2007 21:38:47 UTC (over 9 years ago)
Package: net-tools
Version: 6.2-3
Severity: minor

cosmetic: when doing an "ifdown -a", the following message occurs:

ifconfig: invalid option -- i
usage: ifconfig [-L] [-C] interface address_family [address [dest_address]]
                [parameters]
       ifconfig interface create
       ifconfig -a [-L] [-C] [-d] [-m] [-u] [-v] [address_family]
       ifconfig -l [-d] [-u] [address_family]
       ifconfig [-L] [-C] [-d] [-m] [-u] [-v]

Either make ifconfig handle -i (what's that supposed to do anyway?)
or make ifdown not call ifconfig with -i.
